Whether you love pasta, pork chops, chicken, steaks, prime rib or a salad, you cannot go wrong at the Main Hanger. And the desserts.....are to die for!

The scenery at night is beautiful and the ambiance inside the restaurant is casual, upscale yet comfortable. Every time I enjoy a meal here, I cannot believe I am getting this high quality of service and cuisine in central Illinois.

Great job, owners, managers, and all the staff member!

The Main Hangar stands out above all other Decatur Restaurants. The food they have to chose from far exceeds all other dining establishments, weather it be for the great breakfast buffet or a delicious evening dinner with the family.
The staff there has a very hospitable attitude and seems to love to interact with the diners. The Steaks are FANTASTIC, the Chicken Parmesan is outstanding and handmade Pizzas are cooked to order and taste excellent.
I would and always do recommend the Main Hnagar to all my family , friends and co-workers.

Everything we tried on the menu was wonderful. The Italian food is very authentic and the sauce can't be beat. I love their homemade creamy Italian salad dressing. The desserts were some of the best I've ever had. I highly recommend this restaurant. It's very close to the Decatur zoo and children's museum. We visited this restaurant for lunch after the zoo. The service we had was great also. My daughter loved watching the planes out the window.
